It's that time of year where treats are everywhere and it's easy to fall off track. So I came up with a macro friendly Gingerbread Loaf. It goes really good with coffee or tea. You can also make a macro friendly cream cheese spread to go over it. I am all for enjoying the holiday season without feeling guilty every time I have a treat. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
